Wood. The mesh bottom trailers are mainly for light duty use and dont seem to hold up well. I would go with a pressure treated 2x lumber deck for a landscape trailer and an oak deck for an equipment trailer.

Definitely wood. Some kinds of mesh are also very slippery. Wood is cheaper to maintain and replace. Metal would rot right through in my climate.

What are you carrying with it? How long of a trailer you thinking, single or dual axle?
